Fresno police arrested a suspect in a Sunday murder at a central Fresno group home, according to Fresno County Jail records.
Police arrested Angel Martinez of Fresno, who was booked into Fresno County Jail early Monday for one count of murder in the stabbing death of a fellow house mate in the home on College Avenue west of Manchester Center.
Police reports indicate that Martinez, 48, stabbed the man several times as he was sitting on a couch, and that the men may have had a dispute before the stabbing. Martinez left the home on foot, police said.
Police went to the home just before 3:30 p.m. Saturday. CPR was attempted, but the victim died at the scene. He has only been identified as a man in his 50s. His identity is pending notification of family, according to the Fresno County Coroner’s Office.
